Darling, what you wear is suppose to express who you are as a person. Now, you can either embrace it, or hide it. Whatever you decide should be your decision ONLY! Don’t let others influence your decisions.
Plus, if you do act yourself, then others will learn to respect you. I won’t say that this will happen over night. It’s going to take time, and if others don’t except it, then they aren’t worth your time or concern.
Whatever you decide, dear, just make sure you sport it with pride! You’ll look fabulous!
